    The road north of town.I had a navigation brain fart(hangover?) and ended up doing a loop and back into town on a closed road.This was the morning of the 4th day.The day the camera memory card ran out of space.I left town from the south the way I came in.Still an awesome ride untill you get to Charleston.I hung a rh turn at 746.Crossed 225 and headed west on 732.Fyi for all you hard core bike campers-there is a little used campground on 732 2.5 miles east of 226.I took a break there.At 226 I went south and the turned west to Tuscarora and Midas.I ended up in Winnemucca.This turned into a hot nasty ride .I didnt see any stores out in between Jarbidge and Winnemucca.I ended up having a Basque dinner at the Martin Hotel.And found a vintage 1/2 star motel for $45.I wouldnt do this route again-very boring.After this it was 2 more days home Dirt to Gerlach then pavement.1322 miles in 6 days [​IMG]

    Great trip and great Pics. Hate RRs with photos of food, tents, and bikes lying on the ground. I did not catch museum the one time I was in Jarbidge, very sorry now. You may be interested in my short Dual Sport rides or even Mex2Can, see DualSportWest.com.

    Do you have any better active logs or new tracks to add to Nevada SMTS?

    A comment on the routing.Except for using Countdown's smts tracks from Berlin to Carver's the rest of the ride was run from the AAA Nevada map.If you take out that small( but fun for a dual sport) section everything else could be run on a big gs or vstrom with some good tires.Any of the roads on the AAA map would be fine on a big bike-If you have some dirt skills.Since I ride by myself I dont usually ride extreme routes.

    Great plan but every trip I violate it and wonder how the hell I am going to ever get back to good road. I carry a Sat phone. If I didn't have that, I would have a SPOT.

    That's a good distinction. I've had 990 Adventure riders want our tracks. They have no clue as to the big bike limits. One of the group did a course pre-ride with his GS. It wasn't much of the dirt bike tracks. Lots of soft sand, and some nasty water crossings. Tough enough on thumpers. Tracks belong to the group leader anyway.

    Great trip and great report. Thanks for sharing. I know it's a lot of work putting a RR like this together.

    Makes me want to do more riding in that area. My only foray thru there was the western TAT a few years ago.
